5. Seven-bedroom town house in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, for £70,000
This Victorian house might be sorry-looking now but it’s perfect for buyers craving a serious renovation challenge. It will take time and money to bring all seven bedrooms up to scratch, but with an auction guide price of £70,000, there could be plenty of profit in store.

6. Seven-bedroom detached house in Little Aston, Birmingham, for £3.25m
Making its way into sixth place is the aptly-named Manor House. The recently-built home was clearly designed to impress with an enormous oak staircase and a galleried landing. And hidden beneath the home is an underground showroom with space for a mind-blowing 25 cars.

7. Four-bedroom detached house in Dobwalls, Cornwall, for £100,000

8. Two-bedroom property in Taggs Island, Hampton, London for £385,000
It’s a houseboat in disguise in 8th place. This one, named Fisher Green, is moored off the exclusive Taggs Island in the River Thames where you’ll pay £8,900 a year in mooring costs. It has plenty of headroom, so you can relax and look out over the water without feeling claustrophobic.

9. Seven-bedroom detached house in Hersham, Walton-On-Thames, Surrey, for £4.3m

10. Five-bedroom houseboat in St Katharine Docks, Wapping, London, for £3.7m
Rounding out our top 10, is this houseboat which is proof that life on the water can be more expensive than on land. The 1930’s steel barge has been converted into a contemporary home with its own jet-ski platform and winter garden. Its mooring? In London’s lucrative St Katharine Docks, often home to the Queen’s barge, Gloriana.
